MenEngage

On September 2017, in Public Room – Skopje, the first male fair was held, entitled ” Men Can do It, too!”. Three workshops titled as “Men Iron”, “Men cook”, and “Creative Games for Children” were held within the fair, where men and boys from Macedonia took part. This event was part of the national campaign “Men can do it, too”, which aims to promote engaging men and boys for gender equality.
At the event, the participants upgraded their cookings skills by preparing a family meal and preparing attractive and healthy meals for children following the recipes of George Georgievski-the famous father from Australia (of Macedonian origin) who became a hit on the social networks by preparing kids snacks. George officially gave support to our Macedonian campaign ” Men can do it, too “. At the event participants also had the chance to gain skills for ironing, folding and animating children with shadow theater. Instructors at the workshops were Antonio Gjorgjievski (a professional young chef who also enjoy daily basis cooking for his family), Samet Shabani and Aleksandar Grujic (young people whose hobby is ironing) and Krume Stefanovski (founder of the theater group “Shadows and Clouds” and a dedicated father).
In its first steps, the campaign focuses on promoting positive examples of paternity in everyday life in families, as well as domestic tasks and caregiving.
The campaign is implemented within the project “Engaging men and boys for gender equality” implemented by “ARNO” in partnership with Y-PEER Macedonia, with the support of the UNFPA Regional Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Inc , Organization of Women of the city of Skopje and the National Network against violence against women and domestic violence.
